I think Ryan did a fantastic job on this film. It shows he's a very versatile actor and he can basically manage a lot of different roles.

Has anyone seen it?

I have and I agree!

He was great, so was the rest of the cast, I thought, and it was a suprisingly very sweet little movie.

I agree. It was a very sweet film. I just love how Ryan does very diverse roles and doesn't get stuck on one genre or type of role.

That is definitely something to love about him. He can play many different roles. Makes me want to watch it again.

I think both Half Nelson and Lars and the Real Girl have shown what an amazingly talented actor RG is... i mean, barely in his late twenties and being able to tackle such complex roles! It is mind blowing, honestly.
I heard he doesn't have any formal training, so he must have amazing instincts! Together with Edward Norton and Christian Bale IMO he's one of the top young actors working today (well... not working too much actually... damn you RG ..would you please start reading a few screenplays!)

VERY REAL FILM: The film is a sweet love story which deals with mental illness in subtle ways.

April 14, 2009


Lars and the Real Girl stars Ryan Gosling as a strange but likeable young man who keeps mostly to himself, even when he’s at work.

He only leaves the garage where he lives when his older brother and loving sister-in-law drag him to their house next door for dinner.

Lars doesn't take well to questioning, so the disturbing level of his isolation is never openly discussed.

When Lars announces he has a girlfriend, there’s a glimmer of hope until it’s revealed that he’s imagined a relationship between himself an inflatable female doll he purchased on the Internet.

Family and friends realise he’s got a delicate mental state, and yet nobody quite knows how to help him. So as not to push him over the edge, everyone plays along.

The results are some touching efforts on the part of all those who love him to help Lars through what they hope may be only a phase.

A sweet love story and a film which deals with mental illness in surprisingly subtle ways, Lars and the Real Girl is a tender drama that avoids the kind of cheap jokes that a formula like this could have easily attracted.

More than likely you’ll find a lump in your throat as you take in this film because it’s beautifully acted by Ryan Gosling and because there’s real warmth at its heart.

Rent it on DVD this weekend, it’s one of the loveliest little films you’ll come across.

That is such a lovely review. I still think it's a sweet little film and I love Ryan in it. He's really adorable.
